Anosike Chimobi, from the Ahiazu Mbaise Local Government Area (LGA) of the state, was caught a year after Gulak’s death.

During his visit to Imo State on 30 May 2021, a gang of armed men murdered Gulak, a former adviser to former President Goodluck Jonathan.

According to reports, he was followed from his hotel room to the location where he was murdered near Umueze Obiangwu in Ngor-Okpala LGA, close to the Sam Mbakwe Airport Road in Owerri.

Abattam, while parading the suspects with others, stated that Chimobi had been on the trail of the command since the murder of Gulak a year ago.

He added that the suspect escaped during a gun battle between police officers and his gang members in Aboh Mbaise, which occurred shortly after the murder of the APC leader and in which five suspects were killed.

Chimobi, who also spoke with media, asserted that he was a commercial bus driver and not a member of the criminal organization.

He stated that the assassins of Gulak contacted him to transport them in his truck, and he initially resisted, but eventually complied when they threatened to kill him.

The suspect admitted that he drove the offenders to the location and obstructed Gulak’s vehicle, which was in route to the airport.

According to him, the APC leader was shot after he refused the gunmen’s demand to exit the car.

Chimobi explained that the assailants were later confronted by a team of security personnel who opened fire on the vehicle transporting them till it flipped and caught fire.

According to the command’s spokesman, the police have also apprehended other alleged offenders terrorizing communities in Imo.

Among those exhibited, he claimed, were members of the group that burned down the residence of Professor George Obiozor, president of Ohanaeze Ndigbo.

Among the goods collected from the suspects who were paraded by the police were firearms of various calibers, varied charms, and a live snake.
